    I was reading a thread on another forum which said that if Cronk leaves the storm he's weighing up 2 offers, parramatta and it also inferred Manly.

    Usually the media get hold of this stuff so I suspect it's BS.

    would be a good buy and lead us to another premiership. Though he should never be captain!

    Take him immediately if he is on offer. The idea of a Captain Cronk would be unbearable though!!!!

    He is the only main line storm player I want to see in sea eagles colours. If he is avalible we would be mad to not go after him, and I fully doubt parra have the money to offer him after spending big on Hayne at the end of last year.

    Would love him at Manly, but we can't afford him.

    Why couldnt we afford him...Weve lost Perry, Hodkinson (small dollars I know) salary caps increased.
    Theres a few others we can tip out to make roon for him.

    I could be wrong (and def no inside knowledge) BUT does anyone reckon we let Trent go without much of a fight BECAUSE something else was in the background?

    And don't say Orford cause that isn't going to happen.

    Would not surprise me at all to see him in Maroon and White in 2011, and wow what a signing that would be ;D ;D ;D

    If we couldn't come up with $800K over 3 years for Hodko, how are we gonna pay more than that for Cronk,
    maybe if Matai is let go and maybe another as well

    Its more a matter of did we want to come up with $800k for him or use our dollars elsewhere.

    Also ahve a few more dollars with the cap increase.

    Frontrowers get better with age. Look Price & Civinoceva.

    He'd be about the last player Storm would let go. If he was available though he'd be a top acquisition.

    Maybe manly could have come up with $800 Grand over 3 years for TH but dont you think it may have lead to disharmony in the team from others who have been there longer and it starts a precedent where other young players would expect as much from the start. I think Des knew what he was doing.

    i hope he is...  if he signs i wont say another bloody thing about hodkinson playing for us this yr while he signed with the dogs..
    because ..  i`d be rather content knowing we off loading an inexperience player but gaining a quality player with 1st rate experience next year .. lol DCE  can be his under study .. he will have to play when cronk on origin duty ..
